HELP END VIOLENCE ONE T-SHIRT AT A TIME
With each t-shirt sold, 50% of the net proceeds will go to organizations helping to end the violence that has dominated the U.S. landscape recently: gun violence, racial violence, and LGBTQ violence.
What is it?
It's the anti-violence movement woven into a t-shirt. With the spate of recent violent acts, the need to do something was overwhelming. A plan of action was born with the sole purpose of helping to move the effort to End All Violence forward.
WHY A T-SHIRT?
Because it gives everyone a chance to wear their heart on their sleeve. Because it gives everyone a chance to proactively help End Violence Now.
Why the colors?
To start, there will be three t-shirts that give people an opportunity to pick their passion and run with it. 50% of the net proceeds from sales will be donated as follows:
Red shirt “End Gun Violence Now” -> Benefits Survivors Empowered (http://survivorsempowered.org/)
Black shirt “End Racial Violence Now” -> Benefits Not In Our Town (http://www.niot.org/)
Purple shirt “End LGBTQ Violence Now” -> Benefits National Coalition of Anti-Violence Programs (http://www.ncavp.org/)
WHY THESE organizations?
Because they're organizations that are actively addressing gun violence, racial violence, and LGBTQ violence. They're bringing communities together at the local and national level. They're rated favorably by GuideStar for their standards and practices.
WhERE'S THE MONEY GOING?
50% of the net proceeds will be sent to these organizations which are working to End Violence Now. The remaining 50% will go toward future growth. End Violence Now is NOT a non-profit; however it aims to be a socially-conscious t-shirt movement.
